Just in case it didn’t go long enough. Monday Night Raw and WWE in general are in a weird place at the moment. The fans are not interested in most of what they are being presented and that has been the case for a long time now. It would seem to be a good idea to change things up a little bit, but that has never changed WWE’s mind before. After this week’s Monday Night Raw, they were right back at it again.
According to Ringsidenews.com, there were two post show dark matches after Monday Night Raw. First up, Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch successfully defended the title against Lacey Evans. The second match saw Baron Corbin lose a street fight to Universal Champion Seth Rollins after getting in an argument with the referee. The two teams will face off on Sunday at Extreme Rules in a Winners Take All match.
The winners were in action on Monday Night Raw as well. Check out their efforts in a warmup match:
Opinion: I don’t know how many fans stuck around for these matches but the first match started at 11pm and featured a feud that hasn’t been the most well received. The fans had also seen Lynch and Rollins wrestle in the night so how much value can it really have? The double dark match is a fine idea, but the execution for this pair of them could have been a lot better.
Which of these matches sounds better? What do you think happens on Sunday? Let us know in the comments below.
